A 16-year-old autistic girl who was allegedly abducted last February by an adult male met the man online while playing World of Warcraft, according to a police affidavit filed in the case.

Thirty-eight-year-old David Faboo (at right), drove from Oregon to the girl's town in Northern California for what may have been a prearranged meeting on the morning of Sunday, February 24. After the teenager got into his truck, Faboo headed back to Oregon on a five-hour road trip for the purpose, police say, of having sex with her.

Police caught up with the two on an Oregon highway only after the girl sent text messages from her cellphone to a friend telling him she'd made the mistake of getting into a car with the wrong man. The unidentified girl, who is described in a police affidavit as being autistic and having the mental capacity of a 12-year-old, asked her friend for help and described the white Dodge pickup Faboo was driving.

When police stopped the truck, they found rope, several knives and knife blades, a hatchet, a box of condoms and sex toys, as well as a box of chocolates and a diamond ring. The back of the truck had been outfitted with a makeshift bed.

Faboo, who used the avatar "Avelys," met the girl in a World of Warcraft chat room in January. Over several weeks, the two formed "a love bond," according to Faboo's roommate, and would sometimes stay up through the night playing the online game and communicating via IM, e-mail, and their MySpace accounts. Faboo told the roommate that he planned to marry the girl in the fantasy game and in real life. He tried to convince a female friend identified in the affidavit as Robin T. to deliver flowers, candy and a cellphone to the girl on Valentine's Day, but the friend refused.

The Sacramento Bee quotes a friend of Faboo's named Robin Taylor acknowledging that Faboo told her about a female he met online but that he believed her to be an adult woman who was in an abusive relationship and that he'd felt compelled to help her out.

This account, however, contradicts other information police collected.

According to the affidavit, the victim's MySpace page identified her as a 16-year-old, and pictures linked to her page show a female who police said clearly appeared to be a minor. In one message Faboo sent the girl through their MySpace accounts, he urged her to seek legal emancipation from her father.

Faboo's roommate told police that he sometimes played the game online with Faboo and the victim, and that the victim's 11-year-old female cousin also played online with them. He said Faboo flirted with the cousin. When the roommate expressed concern that Faboo's relationship with the victim could get him into trouble, Faboo told him he didn't mind going back to jail. Faboo has prior convictions for criminal trespassing and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

The roommate told police that on the morning the victim disappeared, Faboo had called him and told him that he should watch the news that day.

The girl's father discovered her missing at 7:30 am on February 24 and called police, who quickly discovered she'd been communicating with an adult named David online. Police didn't know his last name, however. It was only after the girl began text messaging with her friend that police were able to solve the case. For more than three hours, she communicated with the friend, telling him her abductor's last name and revealing that they were driving through a snowy part of Oregon. Police were able to spot them only after obtaining a license number for the vehicle through Department of Motor Vehicle records and patrolling the Oregon highways.
